Getting Personal: 25 Questions About Me

getting-personal

Since my blog is brand new (started on 7/7/17), I figured I’d do this 25 Questions About Me Tag, along with the occasional off-topic personal post in between all the book boyfriend swooning around here.

I’d love to learn more about you! Comment below with the link if you end up doing this tag so I can read it. 🙂

What is your middle name?
Lauren

What was favorite subject at school?
Journalism was always my favorite class in high school. I wrote for the school newspaper and literary magazines — I met my best friend in that class and we’re still best friends today.

What is your favorite drink?
Irish Breakfast Tea with cream and cinnamon. I’m also obsessed with fresh juice from my local juice bar. I always get carrot/apple/orange/kale.

What is your favorite song at the moment?

Here’s the thing about me and music, movies, and books. I obsess. When I love a song/movie/book I will shamelessly listen/watch/read it repeatedly (much to the annoyance of everyone around me.)

I am currently obsessing over all things Dear Evan Hansen, so Waving Through a Window (and basically the entire album) has been playing constantly around here.

Somebody, take me to New York to see it live on Broadway before Ben Platt’s contract is up!

What is your favorite food?
All the tacos.

What is the last thing you bought?
Entry for a 10K that I’m planning to do with my dad next month.

Favorite book of all time?

My heart hurts when I have to answer this question because I feel like I’m shunning my Top 5 favorite books, but I’m going to go with A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. Rhysand is the measuring stick with whom I compare all my potential book boyfriends to. That book slayed me in the best way.

Favorite Color?
Vibrant purple.

Do you have any pets?
Two Guinea pigs: Benedict Cumberpig and Kylo Ren

Favorite Perfume?
I’ve been wearing Victoria’s Secret Love Spell since high school. I realize that’s probably akin to saying Tommy Girl, but whatever. I love it.

Favorite Holiday?
Christmas. I’m all about spending time with my family.

Are you married?

Yes, to a 6’5 bearded dorkface. (It was fate’s way of making up for all the guys I dated who were shorter than me. #allthehighheels)

Have you ever been out of the country, if so how many times?
Yes, once when I was a baby. Flying and long car drives give me anxiety. If I could teleport I’d totally travel the world, though!

Do you speak any other language?
Unfortunately not. Though I’m half Filipino, I was never taught and I kick myself every day for not taking the initiative to learn. My dad (who is Filipino) has lived in the US since college and though he understands Tagalog, he doesn’t speak it often at all.

How many siblings do you have?
1 older brother and 2 older sisters.

What is your favorite shop?
Barnes & Noble is my happy place. Though, I crave an awesome local used bookstore. Alas, there aren’t any around here.

Favorite restaurant?
This is tough. I don’t eat out much. I’m kind of obsessed with Carrabba’s house salad, as random as that is. Anytime I go there I order it dinner sized with grilled chicken.

When was the last time you cried?


When Supermarket Flowers by Ed Sheeran came on. It gets me every. Single. Time. That song captures exactly what it was like when my grandma passed away a few months ago.

Favorite Hobby?
Writing and reading!

Favorite Movie?
Fight Club

Favorite TV show?
Gilmore girls
Gilmore Girls. Hands down.

PC or Mac?
All Mac all the time.

What phone do you have?
iPhone 7 Plus

How tall are you?
5’7

Can you cook?
I can cook, but I can’t bake to save my life.

Don’t forget to comment below with a link to your post if you do this tag! I want to know more about YOU!

    1. I’m torn about it. I absolutely loved some parts and could’ve done without others. I think my adoration for the whole series made me like it even though I was a bit let down by it. (I’m Team Jess all the way and I wish he was in it more)

      It was also a shock to see how much older everyone looked… I think because I’ve watched the original so many times, I got used to seeing them at that age! What about you?

      1. I know what you mean! I did enjoy it though, but like other reboots that come to netflix, it feels a bit cheesy. I did enjoy how they got right back into character with their unique talking style, haha

        1. Haha! My husband has also limited the taco-intake. We have them once a week, but I’d probably eat them every other day if he didn’t complain LOL!

      1. I’m glad I am not alone in this! I used to try not to obsess, but eventually gave up. If I want to listen to a song on repeat for weeks, it’s happening. No shame in my game.

    1. Another Ben Platt lover?? Did we just become best friends?

      And yes! I agree. Supermarket Flowers is my favorite on the album as well. It’s too bad I avoid listening to it because it makes me cry every time lol!

  1. I loved reading this! In all the time we’ve been commenting, I actually haven’t read this post. It’s nice to know more about you and OMG you wrote a book!!!! I just read the synopsis and I’m already swooning!!!

    Also, I’ve been contemplating for the longest time about writing a book (since high school and I’m now 30 haha). I love romance and would like to someday write a book… But I’m a total perfectionist — I’ve tried to just write and write… yet I always end up editing before I even get one chapter done. I’ve always been that way — That’s why all my AP essays were like high C’s and low B’s while my Midterm/Finals essays were A’s. My teachers would always wonder how I write under pressure, but something just clicks. When I have a lot of time, I ALWAYS edit every single sentence. If I don’t like it I can’t move on.

    But anyway, I’m going to support and buy your book on Amazon! =) Love finding new authors to support and your book really sound swoontastic!!!

    xoxo

    1. Awww thank you ❤ ❤ I actually don't think it's a bad thing at all that you're a perfectionist and would edit the hell out of your book — that's really good! Editing was the hardest part for me. This was a total passion project that I have no real intention of making a lot of money off of, I just wanted to share the characters with others. I WISH I had the need to edit everything sentence by sentence! Instead, I made a friend of mine edit it for me. 😛

      You should totally do it! It's so easy to do on your own these days. The hardest part is starting and really pushing through until you've written the last sentence.

      So much love your way, friend! ❤

      1. I bet it’s still a wonderful feeling knowing you wrote a book. I’m the same with you. If I write, it wouldn’t be because I want to make millions… although that would be really awesome… but I just want to share my stories. Even if it’s just my family and friends who read it and I never ever publish. it’s always been one of my life goals to just finish a book. I’ve written down so many ideas and always end up just putting them aside. But one of these I really will =)

        Btw, I just bought your book and I’m so excited to read it! Going to finish the ones I have to read first and then dive into your book!

        xoxo
